East Providence beats Mounties in eight innings

April 27, 2011

EAST PROVIDENCE — This was a case of déjà vu that East Providence High liked and Mount St. Charles Academy didn’t.
Courtney DeCastro’s second walkoff hit of the season, a run-scoring single with two outs in the home half of the eighth inning, drove in younger sister Amy DeCastro with the run that helped the Townies grab a 2-1 victory over the Mounties in their Division I crossover affair at Pierce Field.

Cranston West hands Lincoln first loss

April 27, 2011

CRANSTON — The never-say-die attitude was there. So too were the late-game heroics that some have come to associate Lincoln High baseball with.
On a sun-splashed Tuesday afternoon, the end result went astray from the now one-beaten Lions. A valiant comeback bid was nullified thanks to Cranston West’s Alex Moretti’s two-out double with one on in the bottom of the seventh, lifting the Falcons to the 8-7 walk-off triumph. Moretti’s clutch knock touched down in the right-centerfield gap, chasing home catcher Jeff Diehl with the winning run.

Cumberland boys remain perfect in track

April 27, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Ask any of the girls’ coaches about who would win Tuesday’s Northern Division showdown between host Cumberland High and unbeaten squads Woonsocket and Central Falls and the response was the same.
They simply didn’t have a clue.
“This is going to be a close meet,” said Woonsocket coach Dan Richard midway into the competition. “I thought before the meet, plus or minus five points between all three schools.”

April 26, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Stranding runners on base has been a sore subject with Cumberland High this month, but on Monday afternoon, the Clippers were able to deliver some timely hits in their Division I crossover battle with East Providence High at Tucker Field.
Rebecca Geddes, Samantha Bertherman, and Bridget Connors each drove in a run during a four-run uprising in the home half of the fourth inning, and that rally, parlayed with the dominant one-hit pitching of senior ace Bethany Paul, helped the hosts grab a 4-1 victory.

Baseball season warming up

April 24, 2011

High school baseball players in New England understand there are two phases to their season – chilly and warm. April is usually rainy and cool until the final week of the month. Players must deal with the conditions and try to persevere, knowing the warmth of May is eventually going to arrive.
With the temperature climbing to 76 degrees on Sunday, there’s a hint that warmer weather is right around the corner. That’s good because the division races are starting to take shape and some of this week’s games are pretty interesting.

Kalish's shoulder injury dampens PawSox victory

April 22, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Red Sox – as well as Boston – now holds its collective breath regarding the left shoulder of outfield prospect Ryan Kalish.
Kalish make a diving grab to his left to rob Syracuse’s Michael Aubrey of a surefire base hit in the second inning of Thursday’s 14-0 matinee massacre of the Chiefs. Replays showed that the center fielder jammed his shoulder as he hit the turf and rolled over. Teammates quickly huddled around their fallen comrade as Kalish remained on the ground for several minutes.

Some early season thoughts on PawSox

April 22, 2011

By the time the PawSox return home a week from Saturday, April will all but be a memory. With that in mind, here are some early-season observations/thoughts about the local club.

Josh Reddick saw his miserable start at the plate last season cost him a chance to get up to Boston far sooner than as a September call-up. As his batting average plummeted to unimaginable depths – it stood at .189 on May 30 – Reddick watched as Daniel Nava and Ryan Kalish were summoned to the big leagues.
